Because Life is Better at the Lake

Rambo and Clark Take the Win


Tom Behrens has over 50 years experience in fishing and hunting across the United States. Much of this time was spent in Oklahoma and Texas where he became very familiar with the outdoor opportunities in these states. You may contact him by email at:

A total of 162 teams started the morning searching for at least 16 pounds of Rayburn bass at the Outlaw Outdoors Tournament. Thirty-one teams accomplished this feat. None were better than the team of Cory Rambo and Rusty Clark who topped the field with a stringer of 26.75 pounds anchored by Clark’s 10.27 pound trophy. They left the Cassels Boykin Pavilion with $2,144 plus two GILL FG2 Rain Jackets. Not far behind was the team of Norman Land and Travis Moore with 25.60 pounds. They earned $2,012 for their Sunday on the water. Winning $1,805 for third place was the team of Paul Villarreal and Ron Risenhoover with a solid 23.44 pounds.

The team of Bo Brown and James Brown not only won Daiwa big bass honors, but Bo’s 10.77 pounder took over the lead for the 2019 Monster Mount. The Monster Mount is an award handed out to the angler that catches the largest bass of the year at an Outlaw Outdoors tournament.
